Dynamic Pricing with IP mapping!


Recommended Posts

Is there any way we can sniff a visitor's country by mapping the IP he is visiting our site from?


If we can do that, one can always think of ways to present the default pricing in the visitor's own currency (in brackets beside our default currency). Of course, the visitor should be able to change the currency to any of the others that we additionally define on our site.


What do you think?

It is possible, and his company here looks great and they provide an Open Source solution!



IP addresses are not handed out in batches to specific countries, so a database needs to be created and maintained to keep track of what IP's are where.


This company also have a list which you can use to trace an IP to a specific company who owns the block of address... depends if you want a 23.5 mb file sitting on your server just for this one purpose?


Hope this helps,
